NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON VT
230 AM EST SUN DEC 27 1998

SKIES STARTING TO CLEAR ACROSS MOST OF FCST AREA AS SHRTWV MOVES E
OF AREA.  A RIDGE OF HIGH PRES WILL BUILD INTO TODAY AND SKIES

KINGDOM...EXCEPT OVR THE HIGHER TERRAIN.

TONIGHT...NEXT SHRTWV APPROACHES AREA WITH ANOTHER CHANCE OF

ANY SNOW WITH THIS SYSTEM TO BE NO MORE THAN A DUSTING IN CHAMPLAIN

       ** The area bounded by Waterbury, St. Johnsbury, and Newport**_


   _
   Wednesday Night: Skies will be cloudy through the evening with
   sprinkles or flurries. Light snow will be developing after midnight,
   so watch out on the roadways if you will be driving late tonight. Lows
   will range from 23 in Newport to 28 in St. Johnsbury. Winds will east
   at 5 MPH.

   Thursday: Be careful as you travel to work as light snow in the
   morning will be tapering to flurries or snowshowers. Accumulations

   Sheffield. Highs will reach between 30 and 35 degrees, and winds will
   be northwest at 5 MPH.

   Thursday Night: Skies will be cloudy with light snow through the
   overnight hours. An additional inch accumulation is possible
   overnight. You might have to throw another log on the fire as
   temperatures drop to 15 degrees in the isolated areas such as Granby
   to around 20 in Lyndonville. Winds will be northwest at 5 MPH.

   Friday: When you head out there won't be too much snow to brush off,
   but you might have to scrape the ice off the windshield as cloudy
   skies will continue with a chance of a flurry. Highs will range from
   25 degrees in Danville to 30 in St. Johnsbury. Winds will continue
   from the northwest at 5-10 MPH.

                            Forecast Discussion


   For you snow lovers out there I am happy to write this forecast for
   you. For people who don't like snow, well, it's winter, it had to
   happen at some point. I know that for the Northeast Kingdom winters
   are usually harsh with a lot of snow and cold temperatures, and that a
   few inches shouldn't be that big of a deal. However, considering what
   we have had so far, which are mild temperatures and little amounts of
   snowfall, this is a big event. Nonetheless, we will see some snow
   piling up on the ground through the course of Thursday and Thursday
   night as the "Alberta Clipper" passes over the region, however,
   temperatures will remain rather steady through the period with highs
   around 30 and lows in the 20's. The next chance chance for snow is
   another "Alberta Clipper" that will pass over the region on Saturday.
   A high pressure will then move over the region for Sunday, allowing
   for the clouds to break up and give us a glimpse of the sun, before
   another possible snow event comes back into the picture on Monday.
